  * fix error message in clone command
  
  A command like 'ssh user@host mkdir path' can fail for lots of reasons, not
  only because the path already exists on the remote host. It is much better
  to just rely on the ssh command to report what has gone wrong.

I stumbled over this when testing patch2037 like this:

ben@home[1]:/tmp/bla>darcs clone bla c:/tmp/bla/z
ssh: Could not resolve hostname c: Temporary failure in name resolution
Refusing to overwrite existing file or directory.

Now it says:

ssh: Could not resolve hostname c: Temporary failure in name resolution
Cannot create remote directory '/tmp/bla/z'.
